Ooooooo. sounds fancy.

"More realistic footwork on jump shots"

This made me happy. I just hope it's more contextual in the sense of planting feet properly during wide open shots vs. buzzer-beater releases a la Ray Allen in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals.

Most important feature to me. Hopefully they keep up with it all year

Almost too good to be true. I'll wait till I experience it before celebrating.

Since Crew Mode is current gen only, maybe next-gen will get Association mode improvements or better My Career/Create-a-Player?

I don't really mind. More of an offline guy.

But I hope this means more improvements to Association or My Career.

I'd be mad if next gen got association improvements galore while current gets stuck with Crew junk. That said, I'll have a PS4 this time next year I hope if I can save up enough so I'll have a fun experience in 2k15 to look forward too!

Also, legends rosters still in? I hope so.

This is huge if they get it right. One of the main reason's why it's so frustrating trying to play as a bigman in My Career.

Definitely preordering. Still waiting on news for Association tho

HUHUHUH? i think we need info on this QUICK!!! What does this mean for the Control Stick, and more importantly the Shot Stick? I love the shot stick (with control stick using the modifier), does this mean its gone!?!?! Next-gen or not?? Please dont be like the f-ugly 2k12 shot stick, hated that one.

Other than that, looks good, minus the LEGENDS mention, but I hope we hear about them soon

BTW, Anyone if their is gonna be a next-gen feature list?? Have my PS4 preordered with 2k14 so i gots to know whats up with that...

I'm excited to see these gameplay improvements - pretty much everything I wanted to see. From playbooks to being able to give the offensive guy some body - I'm excited. Can't wait to read an article and/or watch the video with details.

This particular list doesn't have game mode improvements I'm assuming since if it did we would know what the Lebron mode is.

Anyway, I'm really excited about this list. I'm really intrigued by daily updated rosters, the smart play, and really everything else lol
